ArtFields is proud to present the ArtFields Portrait Contest on Saturday, April 27, 2013 from 10 am-4 pm on The Green in Lake City, SC. Twenty-four artists will have the opportunity to compete for “Best in Show” and a $1,000 cash prize by creating portraits of local farmers who will serve as models for the event. The contest will consist of four rounds where the artists will have an hour to create the portrait. Artists at all levels from the Southeastern states are eligible to apply for the contest. Bring your friends and family to watch the action, witness the fun and hear the award announcement at 4:00 pm.
Artists will be paired off randomly and have a designated model. A table will be provided for each pair of artists during each one-hour round. Portraits will be judged immediately after each round and the winners will be announced 15 minutes after the round has ended. There will be a 20- to 30-minute break between each round. Portraits will be displayed between each round, where artists have the option to sell their work from the ArtFields Portrait Contest. Proceeds from sales will go directly to the artists.
Artists are responsible for their own medium, materials and art surfaces. There is a size limitation of 18ʺ x 24ʺ. If any artists have questions about their medium, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (843) 633-1235.
